Former wrestler and actor Dave Bautista said he will be playing Marvel character Drax the Destroyer for the last time in Guardians of the Galaxy, and voiced his views on the upcoming film.
Director James Gunn made a recent announcement on his Twitter account Monday that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3, the third film in the Guardians of the Galaxy saga, will hit theaters on May 5, 2023.
Dave Bautista, who is a guest of Ellen DeGeneres, is looking forward to the last movie of Guardians of the Galaxy, but this may be his last role. One of the main reasons for this is the makeup that he has to endure in every movie.
Here’s what Dave Bautista said:
“It will (be his last appearance). It’s weird because when I said it, I said it recently because I’ve been doing interviews and talking a lot about guardians and I didn’t think it was going to be news because I figured everybody assumed that this is how it works.
We work in trilogies and James Gunn has already announced that it’s his last film, and when James is done I’m done, and I’m also going to be 54 years old by the time Guardians 3 comes out and just like the shirtless thing is getting harder and harder for me.
The journey has come full circle and I’m ready to just kind of step aside and wrap it up.”
